Definite Read


On June 1, 2020, my oldest daughter Deborah wrote her first book entitled Embracing Uncomfortable; Facing our fears while pursuing our purpose. Gary Chapman, who wrote the best selling book 5 Love Languages wrote a wonderful forward to the book.

I got one of the first copies and read the whole book in less than 24 hours. I couldn’t put it down. I know it was my daughter’s first book, but it is a book for our present time. Due to the pandemic that we have been facing for the last few months and the recent protests and riots caused by the brutal death of George Floyd, we need some insight as to how to deal with the uncomfortable present issues in life.

All of us have and will experience uncomfortable life experiences and have a tendency to try to squirm out of these experiences. We sometimes try to deny their existence. We can run from them as they are difficult. None of these choices are healthy for us in the long run. Embracing the uncomfortable situations we face and seeing how these circumstances can be a tool for our personal and corporate growth is the road to experiencial growth.

I am just her father, but I highly recommend you getting this book, as it can cause personal and community transformation. You can get the book on Amazon:

You won’t be sorry you got this book. It’s a book that can help you in your journey thru life.

About James Gorton

I am happily married to Nadine, a person I've known for 20+ years. She and her late husband owned Airpark Auto Service where I took my car for years. Four years after my wife died we began dating and the rest is history. We have a blended family of 6 children between us and love visiting them across this country. We recently had our third grandchild between us. We love to hike, bike and ski. I am a psychologist and do relational life coaching for marriages and families primarily. I love what I do and never get tired of seeing marriages and families move to more healthy places in their lives. Five years ago my oldest daughter Deborah encouraged me to begin writing my thought into a blog I call my Jlog (Jim's log). I have become more and more passionate in connecting everyday experiences to spiritual truths. I hope that as you read my Jlog, you will gain insight into your personal life and experience true growth in your personal and relational life.
